The dollar is rising at the expense of gold

Globally, gold prices fell on Wednesday, as the dollar rose after preliminary results of the US presidential elections showed a close convergence than expected, with US President Donald winning in Florida and advancing in several other swing states.

In spot transactions, gold fell 0.5% to $ 1898.97 an ounce at 0642 GMT, reducing losses by more than 1% incurred earlier after some investors took advantage of the price drop to buy the yellow metal. And US gold futures fell 0.5% to 1900.20 dollars an ounce.

“The market is losing confidence in a clear path to Biden’s victory at the moment,” said Kyle Roda, an analyst at IG Markets.

Trump won in Florida and outpaced Democratic rival Joe Biden in other swing states on Tuesday, but Biden expressed confidence that he would win the election by winning in three major states known as the Rust Belt states.

Biden is expected to inject a greater stimulus into the economy ravaged by the coronavirus pandemic.

Gold is seen as a hedge against inflation and a depreciating currency, which is usually the result of significant stimulus.

The dollar rose 0.4% against a basket of major currencies.
